Maisy: ~1-year-old female black Lab 53 lbs spayed

Background:This sweet young girl was found near Kaiser in San Jose and taken the the San Jose shelter. It’s kind of unbelievable that the owners of a pup this nice didn’t come looking for her, but they didn’t. Of course Lab Rescue scooped her up and she’s now in a wonderful foster home eagerly awaiting her forever home.

What Their Foster Says:Maisy is a loving and energetic puppy. We are delighted to have her in our house. She likes to be near humans, loves to cuddle and will shower you with kisses. She is food motivated, which makes training easier. She knew ‘sit’ before she got here. But now she is responding to stay and fetch. She gets along with our teenage kid, but we don’t know how she will respond to younger kids. She gets along very well with our 4 year old male lab, therefore we think she would benefit from having another dog in the house. We noticed she is very curious and likes to approach other dogs when we go on walks. Though her approach is not aggressive, we are training her slow down and wait till other dogs are comfortable with her approach. Given her puppy energy, she requires a lot of activity. We take her on walks both in the morning and evening. As she is a young pup, the walks and a little bit of play and training during the day are helping to calm Maisie down.

What Their Rescue Rep Says: Maisy is definitely a puppy; lots of energy, loves to play, chew, romp, play, go for a walk, take a rest, repeat. She’s working on crate training and potty training and has settled into her new home very well. Maisy needs basic obedience training and a tutorial in household manners, but she’s treat oriented, eager to please and will learn quickly. Maisy loves everyone she meets, and is good with other dogs. We do not know how Maisy is with cats.

We’d like Maisy to go to a home that is experienced with puppies. Maisy loves people but she is bouncy, likes to nibble on your chin and jumps up which can be disconcerting to small kids, so any kids in the house should be age 8 or older. Maisy is good with dogs large and small and would enjoy a home with another dog (she is great with her 4 year old foster brother) who can show her the ropes. Maisy’s new family will need to commit to taking her to training. Because of the time needed to train puppies and practice their new skills, Maisy’s new home should have a human who is at home enough to give her the focused attention and training she needs and deserves.

Medical: Maisy is spayed, up to date on her vaxes, and will be getting her heartworm test very soon.

Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
